09-03-1977 oversight? top 3 77 show for me...

not having Cornell will cause some angina...

I would find space for 10-02, but other than that, good list...

Yeah, 9/3 might in fact HAVE to be there. The EYES is pretty spectacular, although I'm not as enamored of the loooooong NFA as most are. Great first set as well. If you twisted my arm maybe I'd sub out 11/6 for 9/3.

Maybe ;-)

I was at Englishtown Show and the long NFA was grate, a rusty Truckin was played but understandably cause it had been since 74'. Can't find abetter Half Step, Peggy-o and of course EYES. Top 77 for sure.

thnx Strat, I want to say that was The Newark Evening Newspaper or NY Times, either one, my friends and I were up near the front for most part of the show. Thnx for the clip, the angelic Peggy-o coming down the stairs was beautiful.

one instance where the Dead came through big time and didn't shit their pants ala Woodstock, instead they rocked...I believe this stands as their biggest crowd for a headlining gig...Woodstock and Watkins Glen 73 the 2 overall biggest audiences...they are remarkably tight for not having been onstage since 06-09 Winterland...love this show, my Dicks Picks copy gets a lot of play...today we can all appreciate a Terrapin encore, however at the show it must have been a cool but curious choice, some folks were still warming up to some of the new stuff I'm sure...

I remember being like 11 and living in Old Bridge, not too far down the road from Englishtown ( the site of a great and sprawling flea market on the weekends) Me and my buddies road our Schwinn bikes through the throng of masses that morning, watching groups of people park four, five miles from the site, carrying coolers of beer and all sorts of lawn implements and whatnot, and wondering "who the hell are these people?" Enterprising homeowners made bank selling their front yards as parking spots. A warm sultry day, with thousands in sandels and cutoffs, cops on horseback and mostly freaks partying in the largest parking lot in Jersey history. A lot of folks just left their cars in the road... I never thought I would get on the bus just 4 years later.

9-3 is just too good, all the first set tunes are top shelf versions, including top 3 versions of TLEO, Mississippi Half-Step Toodleloo, Peggy-O and Music...second set has that Eyes, which is just as good as 10-29 and 11-05...big jams ...11-06 is just too damn sloppy for my top 10, although I would keep the Half Step and Truckin'...02-26 should et a mention as one of the better debut heavy shows, with a nice Deal and Eyes...
